Established in 2017 by designer Daria Stankiewicz, Lido is an independent swimwear label based in Venice, Italy. Named after the famous Venetian island and Europe’s first beach town resort, Lido was born out of a desire to create practical swimwear for the contemporary woman. By offering timeless silhouettes that effortlessly combine form with function, Stankiewicz seeks to re-contextualize the modern day bathing experience. The self-taught designer engages a slow-fashion approach when it comes to her swimwear designs, creating high quality pieces out of eco-friendly Italian Lycra. The collection is punctuated by elegantly tailored one-piece swimsuits and bikini sets that arrive in a variety of cuts and solid bold colors. It is Stankiewicz’s attention to detail: criss-cross straps, scoop neck collars, and plunging backs, that add an element of unexpected femininity to her minimalist streamlined designs. Drawing attention to meticulous Italian craftsmanship, Lido’s offering of elevated swimwear essentials emanates with understated beauty.
